Seeing the Keukenhof Gardens is a once in a lifetime experience, and Viator has your chance to win 2 tickets to the famously colorful exhibition on the popular Keukenhof Gardens and Tulip Fields Tour! Known for their tulips, the Dutch have managed to capture the color and fragrance of spring perfectly. Located just outside of Amsterdam, the Keukenhof Gardens are collectively known as the Garden of Europe for a reason – approximately 7 million bulbs are planted each year! The Keukenhof Gardens are only open for a short time each spring, this year the gardens will be on display from March 24 through May 20.
Amidst the flowers there are exquisite pieces of sculpture and other works of art to admire. Take a look at photos of Keukenhof submitted by actual Viator travelers, and you’ll be amazed by the array of blooms in the carefully designed gardens. En route to Keukenhof you’ll drive through the beautiful Dutch countryside, passing even more vibrant tulip fields along the way.
The Netherlands uses the Keukenhof Gardens as a way to celebrate international connections, and the theme for 2011 is, “Germany: Land of Poets and Philosophers.” The highlight this year is a spectacular mosaic of Berlin‘s Brandenburg Gate, created using more than 100,000 flowering bulbs.
On April 16, 2011, the Keukenhof Gardens will host a flower parade featuring flower creations and floats expanding on the culural theme. Visitors on this day will also recieve:
- Guaranteed skip-the-line access into Keukenhof Gardens
- Parade Viewing Platform – VIP Access
- Keukenhof Gardens Booklet (value 10 euros)
Make sure to arrive early!
